Still using AE 158 soft points. Dropped a nice sized whitetail a couple days ago. Missed the heart, blew the lungs out. Short run and easy recovery. The 357 is quite able. Yeah, the 44 would be easier, but, who wants easy? About a 65yard shot.

Remember, it's not how many guns you have. It's how many bullets you have.

I went with the .357 as I have several revolvers in that caliber. Although I do not routinely shoot the same loads through the carbine and revolvers, I could in a pinch if I had to. It has been a great rifle and goes along with me frequently.

congrats indeed .... its really nice when faced with such a decision that there simply isn't a bad choice .... our 357 (and 44) Henry rifles have both proven to be outstanding performers
